Rated 2 out of 5 by tiffmf Odd Fit. Narrow skirt.
I really wanted to like this dress, but the fit is just too weird. The cut it not nearly as simple as it looks in the pictures. There is a lot of puffy pleating in the mid section. It's also a much narrower skirt than it looks, which just emphasizes the pooffy pleats over the stomach. I do not have a big butt, and I usually wear a size 4 in Anthro dresses - But my butt was way too big for the proportions of this skirt. Might work for you if you're stick thin. It also would only work in cool weather though, because the fabric is super thick, with a hot, synthetic lining. I will be returning this.

This may be my happiest purchase yet from Anthro! I bought the polka dot version yesterday on 15% day. On the hangar, it may look a bit awkward, but the fit is perfect on me. Of course, I am lucky in that in Atlanta, one of our three Anthros has a Petites Corner. This is wonderful, so I was able to get a 0 Petite. The color is beautiful, the back details fits perfectly. I think the shape would be flattering to many shapes. I am stick thin except for my three child middle which the slightly high waist disguises. This is a great transition seasonal period that will be great with sandals or boots! THANKS Maeve - once again.

I wanted to buy this dress so badly. I am typically a 12 in pants and dresses, 36D bust, and the 12 fit so wonderfully - from the front. It fit my waist and hips perfectly, no pulling at my bust or hips, it hit directly above my knees, and is a very soft, smooth but sturdy fabric. However, the straps were winging out in the back and bunching oddly because the straps are too long for my torso (I'm 5'3). I would order this in a 12P but I fear the measurements everywhere else will be different. I'm still considering maybe buying it and taking it to a tailor and having the straps taken up an inch or so, but I don't know if it's worth it. An incredibly lovely dress for anyone over 5'4 or so.
